Dental implants have revolutionized the field of dentistry. They have been extremely successful (about 98%) in replacing missing teeth, which is more than that of knee replacement. It is the best functional as well as cosmetic solution for replacing missing teeth.
We consider dental implants in nagpur as the first choice to replace a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. The use of dental implants is the preferred method to replace entire set of your teeth or even to fix your loose artificial denture.

You will find many options for dental implants on the internet, but take care and assess the facts carefully. If it sounds too cheap it probably is. There are just so many aspects of implant dentistry to consider, from the training of the surgeons to the quality of the lab work and technicians involved and the time allowed to complete the treatment. Most importantly there are few implant systems that have the detailed and extensive research showing that they will last the test of time and chewing. It is always possible to use duplicate implants and cheaper components, but this is something we will never allow at Smilekraft.

A dental implant is a titanium screw placed in lieu of the missing tooth or teeth, which acts as a post for placement of a crown. Thus no adjacent teeth are harmed during its placement, giving it a definite edge over bridges. These titanium implants have the ability to fuse with living bone once healing is complete which makes them ideal anchors for artificial crowns. If proper oral hygiene is maintained Dental Implants can and will last you a lifetime.

Modern dental implant techniques have made it possible for almost anyone to be right candidate for dental implants. Newer techniques such as sinus lift, bone grafting, all on 4 implants, basal cortical implants have opened new doors of implant dentistry for all. Few exceptions where dental implant are not advisable
- Chronic uncontrolled diabetes
- Patients who are not willing to quit smoking
- Immunological systemic illness
- Concomitant corticosteroid therapy
- Very low bone volume for implant insertion.
We prefer to use latest technology available to aid our clinical practice. Before going forward with placement of dental implant, we prefer getting a Cone Beam CT Scan (CBCT) done. CBCT is a CT scan of your jaw and teeth. This modern tool has enabled us to see your jaw bone condition, bone volume and density, space available, proximity to important structures such as nerves and sinus. This helps us in virtual planning before implant placement.
Dental implant are a cost effective solution considering the increase in average lifespan now-a-days. Though the initial cost of a dental implant is more than that of a bridge, in the long term this cost evens out as you might have to make more than one bridge during your life time. We desire that our patients are comfortable for their lifetime that too with fixed teeth. Dental Implants have more longitivity as compared to the other 2 options. They are the most comfortable, most hygienic and hence most cost effective solution to replacing missing teeth.
The cost of a single dental implants in Nagpur ranges from INR 20,000 to 40,000 depending on the implant company. Since we want to give our patients the best treatment and to encourage them for better treatment options we, at Smilekraft, offer different payment plans that will suit your pocket.
So feel free to contact us for any queries regarding dental implant.
Placing a dental implant is a relatively pain free simple procedure. Patients are given antibiotics before the procedure and anaesthetized. Sedation is not normally used but can be arranged for very anxious patients. Smilekraft places dental implant in sterile conditions to minimize the risk of infection. We use our separate surgical operatory for implant procedures where in strict aseptic procedures are followed.
A single missing tooth can easily be replaced by a single dental implant. After placement of the dental implant, it is recommended to wait for three months for healing of the bone around the implant. After three months the implant can be fitted with a crown to complete the prosthesis.
There can be any reason for missing a tooth, a trauma or an accident. Such was the case for our young patient Sonia. Imagine the plight of a young girl who loses a front tooth less than 4 months before her marriage. Sonia was distraught. She came to us with her problem and we assured her all would be well. And it was….
We replaced her front tooth with a special dental implant and fixed for her a permanent crown (tooth) on the implant. All within 2 months. She could not contain her happiness! Her smile was picture-perfect for the pre-wedding photo shoot as well as the wedding.
In some cases single or multiple dental implant can be placed in the jaws immediately after extraction of the teeth. Temporary crowns can also be placed immediately so that you can continue to smile naturally. After 3 -4 months of bone healing, when the implants have integrated with bone permanent crowns can be fitted on the implants.
It is not imperative to place multiple dental implant for multiple adjacent missing teeth. In such case can sometimes be managed with the help of implant supported bridge. Three or four unit bridges can be placed between two or three dental implant.
An Overdenture is a denture that is held in place with ball like attachments or locators that screw into the Dental implant. It is an intermediate option between traditional removable dentures and fixed full arch denture. The overdenture is snapped in place with the implant attachments and can be removed for cleaning. Overdenture can be given based on 2-4 implants in each jaw. Overdentures are ideal for patients who have difficulty coping with loose dentures. It has a better grip than a normal denture while eating and thus more comfortable than the traditional dentures.
Implant supported fixed denture is the pinnacle of dental implant treatments. It has served to be a great boon for those patients who are tired of or simply don't want to take their dentures out every night. The denture is screwed on the implants and this gives a more natural feel to your new teeth. Normal chewing habits can be resumed and you never even have to remove your teeth!
The final long-term bridges that will replace your temporary bridges placed during surgery are fitted about 4-6 months later. This phase truly can't be rushed, but there is rarely the need to do so, as you will already have a superb set of interim teeth soon after implant placement.
Our treatment ensures you will be cared for long-term, with ongoing follow-up appointments, ensuring a happy life away from the nightmares of dentures and painful failing teeth.
Types of fixed full arch prosthesis:
Implant-supported dentures can help you enjoy your favourite foods that you miss out on due to missing teeth. The same was the case with Mrs P Iyer, 68, who was without most of her teeth for the last 3 years. She was not able to eat the food she liked. Her son, a working IT professional in California, realized his mother’s problems.
He got the information about our work in these kinds of problems and he immediately scheduled her appointment with us.
In the first phase, we removed her remaining teeth and placed dental implants in the upper and lower jaws in the same appointment. Within 15 days she had a fixed denture which she was supposed to use for the next 6 months. After 6 months we gave her the final fixed set of teeth on her dental implants. She was so happy that she could eat most of the foods which she liked after such a long time. She realized that she should have undergone this treatment long back.
Isn't it unbelievable!? But yes it is possible. With our dental laboratory support we can give you a full set of teeth within a day. Once implants are placed, a temporary prosthesis can be fabricated within a few hours. This temporary prosthesis remains in your mouth for about 4 -6 months. It is fabricated in such a way that minimal forces /biting pressures are exerted on the dental implant. Once the implants are integrated with the adjacent bone (4 -6 months), this temporary prosthesis is replaced with a permanent one.
Bone levels start to decline once teeth are lost. Generally the longer the teeth are missing, the less bone patients have. These problems can sometimes be overcome by using shorter implants or by bone grafting. Bone grafting involves placing synthetic bone crystals or bone from elsewhere - usually the mouth, under the gum. These bone crystals or bone is left for six to nine months until sufficient bone has grown to place the dental implant. Sometimes bone has to be added during implant placement also.
Sinus lifts are used if patients don't have enough bone in the upper arch towards the back of the mouth. The maxillary sinus is gently pushed up to allow space for bone to be added. This provides additional space for accommodating dental implant.
Guided Surgery involves the placement of dental implant in a case that has first been planned on a computer in such a way that the position of implants is accurately predetermined. A 3 dimensional CT scan of the jaw bones is used to plan the position of the implants using cutting edge software. This information is then sent to a specialized laboratory who makes a guide (stent) that fits over the patient's gums. This guide is used to place the implants extremely accurately. This is particularly useful for patients who want a complete set of fixed teeth very quickly or for patients with very little bone.
